Israel and Iran


Should the Israeli decide to take out the Iranian nuclear facilities I feel they have the ability to take out many of the key sites. The big ones at Natanz and Bushehr being the most important. In the past the Israeli have come up with unexpected ways to accomplish their goals. I'm old enough to remember the "Six Day War" when the Egyptians blockaded the Straits of Tiran, thereby shutting down the Israeli port of Elat and denying Israel an exit to the Red Sea (Israel could not use the Suez Canal at that time). The Israeli responded with an unexpected air strike on the Egyptian Air Force, by sending their air force some 300 or so miles out into the Mediterranean Sea north of Egypt and coming in from that direction, avoiding Egyptian radar focused to the east and at the same time sending their tank forces into the Sinai and by-passing the fixed Egyptian positions in the desert--theirs were classic moves and well thought out.

Bebe, sees a clear and present danger from Iran and knows that continued negotiations with Iran are futile(Obama is yet to see this), and are simply stalling tactics to gain more time to complete their nuclear program. Everyone seems to know this except Obama and many on the left who have put their heads in the sand. I suspect however, if the truth was really known, that Obama and those on the left actually favor the Arabs (and I should say Persians) in this conflict. I see nothing in Obama's background that would lead him to support the Israeli positions. If I had to bet, I contend that he is anti-Israel and would love to see the Jewish state disappear. Many, many on the left hold this position and make no secret about it.

I think the onrushing events will soon overtake Netanyahu and he will be forced to act. Events are moving quickly and the "Dogs of War" will soon be unleashed. Whether waves or ripples will come from the attack reminds to be seen, but from the Israeli perspective I feel they see few if any options.

Good assessment of the issues over there. I agree, and look forward with interest at what the "ripples" will bring.

Of course our Muslim-N-Chief won't side with Israel... They are stalling in hopes that those maniacs get nuclear weapons... We are being lead by a president that wants nothing more than to destroy this country...

I'm sure Israel will face global condemnation, but it's not a question of if, but when they take out Iran's nuclear sites...


It wouldn't bring a tear to my if they took out the entire country... GOOD RIDENCE...

Should that occur you can expect the Strait of Hormuz to be targeted by Iran, possibly by mines, the sinking of ships, or actual attacks. Gas prices will skyrocket, refining will shut down, countries hating America will shut their own facilities and rally around Iran.

And that's just to start.

Tee ripples will be horrendous. The other option is nuclear war. Pick your poison.

There was something in the news that Obama would not allow Israel to fly over Iraq in order to attack Iran. Who knows. Turkey also has it's problems with Israel.

Saudi Arabia on the other hand wants Israel or the US to take out Iran's nuclear sites. Strange bedfellows.

Hope all is well with you and your wife, ... as well as can be expected under the circumstances. today is the Grouch's birthday. I'm so blessed to have him.

Thanks for your concerns Debbie about my wife. She is not doing well and almost completely bed-ridden at this point. Its all I can do just to get in a few post each day and feel badly about not being able to make the rounds and comment on my friends sites.

Would be nice if America would send in some JDAMs and heavy ordinance to soften the mullahs up for the Israelis to clean up.

But then zero would need to find some balls from somewhere first.
